Setting permissions the first time you join a meeting

The first time you join an Ooma Meeting using a compatible web browser and try to use your microphone or webcam, you may see a popup like this:

use mic

The popup will request different permissions depending on which component of your computer meetings.ooma.com needs to access. You will need to grant permission individually for your microphone (so you can speak), web cam (so you can share video of yourself), and screen recording (so you can share your screen).

Click allow to enable these settings. Your computer should remember this choice the next time you join an Ooma Meeting from the web.
